    Bigger Throttle Body?

    Does anyone know if you can take a bigger ( cable operated) throttle body off of lets say an old 2.2, and fit it on the inlet manifold of the x18xe1?

    providing i increased the pipe diameter from the air box to the throttle body - would there be a difference?

    the 2.2s are all electric throttle as far as im aware, if you could get a bigger throttle body on there then yes there should be a difference, alot of people enlarge theres to help power

    presume he means the X22 as used in the frontera and the likes (similar to the XEV)

    im sure there are choices available but not sure off hand what they are as ive never needed to research this personally

    I have seen this done but with the z22se, it threw up fault codes and idled badly, that was with changing the inlet manifold. there has been a successful attempt though i think...

    The Ecotec engines in the US are bigger (2.4 liter) and use bigger throttle bodies.

    I've seen a user here fit one to his Z22SE. Can't remember who

    There be 4 Ecotec (L850 family) engines is the US...

    L61 - 2.2 NA (aka Z22se)
    LE5 - 2.4 NA
    LSJ - 2.0 supercharged
    LNF - 2.0 turbocharged

    I'm running the 68mm TB off the LSJ, instead of the standard 58mm one. The LE5 also uses a 68mm TB, and I believe this to the the one folk seems to have a problem with.

    But to answer Bludshot's orignial Q...L850 TB's won't work on your engine
